The 4,513 seat facility opened in 1996. In 1998, naming rights were sold to Newman Outdoor Advertising for $1.5 million. Fargo based architect firm R.L. Engebretson P.C. worked on the design with RedHawks GM John Dittrich and Assistant GM Tim Flakoll and City of Fargo leaders.
The stadium contained the Maury Wills Museum in honor of the former Major League Baseball player who worked for the RedHawks as a coach and a radio analyst until the conclusion of the 2017 Season.
The first number retired at the stadium was the #8 worn by hometown hero Roger Maris when he played for the Fargo-Moorhead Twins in the 1950s. The outfield distances replicate those of Yankee stadium where Maris made history.
In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the field the sixth most underrated venue in Division I baseball.
The stadium will be one of the four hub stadiums used for the six team shortened American Association season in 2020. It will be the hub stadium for the RedHawks as well as the Winnipeg Goldeyes.

On our visit to Fargo we were pleasantly surprised to find a b ball game that very night. The redhawks played the milkmen in a very exciting game. The field was beautiful and had many amenities to choose from for dinner selections. Easy to see all the action. A family friendly time. Make sure and check out the university campus while there.
For one, I commend you on the security staff you have. They follow through, even if it ruffles feathers. I as others appreciate them at every game. Thanks gang
